Fuchsia Petal Earrings

Designed by: Holly Eve

Difficulty: Beginner


Follow Holly's step by step tutorial to make this cute pair of beaded earrings with beautiful beads from TOHO™ and Matubo! There are enough beads to make approx 9 pairs of earrings (you would need more ear wires) so this is a fantastic design for those wanting to make to sell or for Christmas Stocking fillers. 

Materials required:
Size 11 TOHO™ Round Beads - 2 colours
Matubo SuperDuo™ beads - 2 colours
Beading thread

Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

Cut a length of thread and add a needle to one end. Thread on 3 x white seed beads, one of your ear wires, and 3 x white seed beads. Thread through a 6mm faceted round bead and thread around this circle of beads again. Knot the thread and the tail thread together.

Step 2

Thread out of the faceted round bead and pick up 2 x white seed beads, 7 x twin super duo beads and 2 x white seed beads. Thread through the faceted round and knot to the tail thread again. 

Step 3

Thread through the first of the 2 seed beads, pick up 2 more seed beads and thread through the second hole on the super duo. Add a pink seed bead between each super duo. Pick up 2 white seed beads after the last super duo and thread through the 1st seed bead closest to the faceted round to match the other side of the petal shape. 

Step 4

Travel back around the petal shape and thread out of a pink seed bead. Pick up another pink seed and thread through the next seed bead so it sits on top of the super duo bead. Do this 5 times.

Step 5

Travel back around the petal shape and exit through the 1st of the new pink seed beads you added in step 4. Pick up 2 super duo beads and thread through the next seed bead. Do this 4 times. 

Step 6

Finally, travel back around the petal, and add a single seed bead in the centre of each of the twin hole pairs.
Weave your thread back into your beadwork, knotting along the way until you are confident it won't unravel. Do the same with your tail thread and trim off any excess cord.
